Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro

ef_50_25c_1_
Review Date: Feb 4, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Sharp and light. Well priced.
Cons:

A great 50mm choice with the added benefit of 1:2 macro ability.
Although an older design lens it offers good sharpness and contrast. Its a keeper even if one day I buy a dedicated macro L lens. Highly recommended.

Pros: Solid build, image quality, fast AF, battery life, custom functions.
Cons:

This is one well built camera.
The custom functions need to be set up for your needs to get the most out of it. When set up correctly this camera produces. IQ is just lovely. The AF is fast and accurate. No doubt you will be aware of AF issues on some bodies, all I can say is don't let the minority be the judges for the majority. Try one for yourself and make up your own mind, I did and I couldn't be happier.
